"This is the most delicious waffle imaginable. I will never buy frozen waffles or use instant mix again. These are so buttery and crunchy, I ate them plain. I wanted to keep it simple so I got this from Joy of Cooking. Never fails. I promise you won't be disappointed. If I can stop eating them (which I doubt), I will freeze them for later. Enjoy!!!!!"

  1. It makes 5 waffles
  2. This is a pretty good recipe. I took another user's advice and only used 1 stick (1/2 cup) of butter and I also added 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and they were excellent. I was actually pretty impressed considering we just bought a waffle iron yesterday and this was my first time ever making waffles. Thanks for posting Bay Laurel!
  3. OK, the recipe works, but I just felt it was way to much butter. They tasted fried and kinda greasy. I think you could cut the butter in 1/2 here and have the same buttery waffles without the fried affect. Didn't have to coat the waffle iron at all though! lol I got 11 waffles out of this.
  4. These had a really great flavor to them. The only problem I had was that when I added the melted butter to the milk/eggs, it kind of clumped up. Not sure if this affected anything though. I made 3 waffles (I have a new iron and wasn't sure how it would work) and we ate the first one that came out while the others were cooking. It was delicious just plain. The other two we had with recipe #16391, the Warm Blueberry Sauce. Thanks for a yummy recipe!


<p>I've noticed plenty of members are animal lovers. That helps me feel right at home. I have 3 cats that I could tell stories about all day.. <br />My daughter is 9 and never know what to expect when it comes to meal time unless she put in a special request. <br />I love cooking new things all the time since I get bored fairly quickly. Of course there are those recipes that I can't get out of my head and I make them over and over. <br />Following directions is very difficult for me so I use recipes as guidelines and that is it. If something really works for me, I post it. <br />A lot of my favorite recipes are copy cat. I would much rather make something I love from a restaurant than actually go. <br />I make Alice Springs Chicken monthly and Cottage Cheese pancakes at least 4 times a month. Those two recipes will never get old in this house. <br />If I'm taking pictures of my freshly made food, my DD knows she's gonna be trying something new. She doesn't always appreciate it but she is not starving. <br />Enjoy!! <br /><img src=http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Participation.jpg alt= /> <br /><img src=http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Iwasadopted.jpg alt= /> <br /><img src=http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/Animation6.gif alt= /> <br /> <br /><img src=http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/PACsticker-Adopted.jpg alt= /> <br /><img src=http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b2/kiwidutch/my3chefs2009final-1.jpg alt= /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Holiday-plaid_HPI.gif border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v726/annacia/Permanent%20Banners/snow-queens-sm.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></p>
